INTRODUCTION 



This index has been compiled because no complete, 
cumulative index to Massachusetts legislative documents 
exists for the years from 1883 to 1899. Legislative 
documents consist of House and Senate bills, resolutions, 
petitions, messages and reports, ranging in length from a few 
lines to one hundred pages or more. The index should prove 
extremely valuable to anyone doing legal or historical 
research in the late 19th century. 

The only other access to legislative documents from 1883 
through 1899 is an index for each year which appears at the 
front of each bound volume of the documents. These indexes 
are antiguated and difficult to use because of language and 
indexing phraseology. The predecessor to this index is 
Francis Blouin Jr. 's Index and Guide to Massachusetts State 
Legislative Documents, 1802-1882 , which was published in 
1972. The successor to this 1883-1899 index is the 
Legislative Research Bureau's Index to Special Reports 
Authorized by the General Court , which begins coverage in 
1900 and is updated periodically, but limits its scope to 
only legislative reports. 

In order to maintain consistency and continuity, the 
format for each index entry is the same as those of the 
Blouin and Research Bureau indexes. The first two digits 
represent the year the document was issued; the letters, H or 
S, represent the branch of the General Court; and the number 
following the letter represents the individual document. 
Thus, 83H255 is House document number 255 issued in 1883. 

Compiling this index was not without some difficult 
language related problems. Terminology was often archaic and 
had to be updated. For example, instead of intoxicating 
liguors, alcoholic beverages was used. Also, mentally ill 
was substituted for insane and mentally handicapped for such 
terms as feeble-minded or idiotic. There was also a problem 
understanding some of the legal terminology involving 
bankruptcy, contracts and real estate due to the compiler's 
lack of knowledge in those areas. 

Another problem was the lack of consistency with the 
forms of corporate and agency names, which appeared to be 
based on the whims of the bills' authors. Cross referencing 
was one solution, but often the final decision on the form of 
a corporate entry was based on which name was most 
consistently employed. 

A third major problem was the lack of consistency in 
terminology used in the documents. Language involving 
transportation, sewage disposal and municipal utilities, to 
name a few, got extremely confusing as shifts in terminology 
evolved over the years. 

In spite of the problems it was rewarding and exciting 
to observe political and social issues emerging and passing 
away over time. There was a definite emphasis on banking.

insurance, and real estate throughout the entire period. The 
growth of railroad and street railway industries is also well 
documented. Local transportation, water supply and municipal 
utilities become more important as the years progress. 
Issues that appeared between 1883 and 1899 that are still 
with us today include an assortment ranging from abortion and 
alcohol education in schools to gypsy moth extermination. 
Social issues that are well documented include religious 
freedom, women suffrage, and immigration. While it can be 
admitted that most of the indexing was tremendously tedious, 
the discovery of these pearls of legislative history and the 
knowledge that they would become more accessible to 
researchers, made the index come alive and take on a purpose 
that made the whole project worthwhile pursuing. 

Finally, while I proofread and edited this index a 
number of times, being as careful as possible to catch all 
errors, incidences of number transposition or typographical 
error may still be present. I apologize for any such 
inaccuracies and hope they will not hinder greatly the 
completion of research or problem solution.
